I battery went dead. I have pluged it into my computer . It lights up and shows a picture of it attached to the computer and the word Garmin but it does not show it chargeing.


Please leave it to charge and after about 2 hours - check it.
The Garmins need an initial charge to run - it is not bypassed if dead. It will not run on adapter power.

If it will not charge in vehicle or home - the jack may be loose from the board - but more likely the battery has failed.

Nuvi 255 dead and why?


Have you tried resetting the GPS,the reset buuton is on the bottom of the GPS under the serial number,
press and hold the reset button for several seconds.
If this fails try rebooting by holding the Power switch on for about 15 seconds.

Your Nuvi has suffered the firmware or system software equivalent of a stroke.

Just brought nuvi 200 pink. I might be stupid but it doesnt seem to turn on at all. Even when plugged into charge. is there anything else I need to do?


It must charge for at least 6 to 8 hours before it will work. If you have already done that, then turn on the unit by pushing the power button and holding for a count of 3 to 5 and then releasing

Garmin gps 12 wont turn on.


Sorry to hear of the dead units. Are you using the correct power cable with a small hole in the centre of the plug? The GPS 12 is strictly limited to 7 volts only. The accessory cigarette lighter cable for this model has a circuit inside to drop the voltage from 12 to 7. Cannot be fixed. There would have been a plastic peg in the back of the GPS socket to prevent anything but the correct voltage Garmin cable being plugged in. Unfortunately these pegs are easily broken off. Yes, they are a good little unit even though well on in years. The next model up - the 12XL - can accept a wide voltage range and does not have the plastic peg.

All the best, Tony at KiwiGPS.

Has been working fine..now will not turn on.


It sounds like a dead battery?
When it is plugged into the car, you should see a charging symbol, or it will say charging if the screen is off.
Are you sure it is getting power from the car? Check the fuse for the lighter socket, also the power cord has a fuse in the end that goes into the cigarette lighter socket, if you twist the end of the adapter it should open and expose a fuse.
Check these fuses to be sure.

Hope this helps.

My garmin nuvi 200 worked fine the first 3 times


Connect your GPS to your computer with the USB cable and this will charge the GPS internal battery. Of course your computer will have to be on during the charging process. After a few hours turn on your GPS and see if it now works. If it now works then go to http://www.garmin.com and register the GPS. While you are on line also download the latest USB drivers for your computer and install them. When you reboot your GPS should be properly connected to the computer for Operating system downloads etc.

My Garmin c550 will not come on anymore. The screeen is black


Check the 12v power cord to make sure its still powering/charging the unit. Usually they have a light on them that will show if its receiving power or not. You can also unscrew the tip of those things (on most cables) and check the fuse to see if its blown. If its not lighting up and the fuse on the cable is ok check the one in your truck to see if it needs replacing.

If the cable is not the issue then the GPS is probably dead. If its not under warranty the flat rate repair fee from Garmin is $200
